Plans for a safe return

RCSJ is committed to a campus return that will provide a safe learning environment for Fall 2020.

As always, the health and safety of our RCSJ community is our top priority. To accomplish our goal of opening campus, we have developed an extensive plan that offers safe and flexible options for participation in classes and activities in compliance with government directives, public health guidance and higher education best practices.

Key Points

  • The Fall semester will begin as scheduled on Tuesday, September 1, and will conclude on Saturday, December 12. Courses for the Fall semester will be delivered as online, hybrid, and live online (real-time class meetings using Zoom).

    Hybrids for Fall

    Hybrid sessions will be offered for specific classes and programs that require a laboratory, clinical/internships, and hands-on work for accreditation, licensing, and for students to achieve the knowledge necessary for success in their fields of study.

    Your lab may be online now. Learn more about our Online Labs.

Class Schedules and Delivery

The success of and support for students attending RCSJ is of utmost importance to the faculty and staff, therefore instruction will occur as outlined below:

The summer sessions are continuing, all with completely online delivery for courses. Internships that are critical for student training in their field, as well as clinical placements, will resume upon the College reopening and student acceptance into such external placements.

The Fall semester will begin as scheduled on Tuesday, September 1, and will conclude on Saturday, December 12.

Classes for the Fall semester will be delivered as online and hybrid

Hybrid sessions will be offered for specific classes and programs that require a laboratory, clinical/internships, and hands-on work for accreditation, licensing, and for students to achieve the knowledge necessary for success in their fields of study. 

In addition to online and hybrid delivery formats, the College is introducing a Live Online format for all traditional classes that incorporates expanded online learning resources and capabilities using Zoom to conduct real-time class meetings. This will allow for nearly all traditional face-to-face classes to be taken synchronously from a remote location using Zoom as the interactive learning platform. This will allow the faculty and student interactions that students and faculty crave, but will allow for physical distancing for the safety of the faculty and student body. Full details regarding the operating platforms for each course will be communicated to each student.

Screening, Testing, and Tracing

Self-Reported Symptom Assessment

Once the campus is open for returning students and employees, everyone will be required to submit their temperature daily and attest to being symptom-free before being able to access College buildings. Temperature checks will be conducted daily.

Attendance

Individuals responsible for groups of employees or students at events, such as classroom lectures, meetings and other gatherings, must document attendance. This may be done using digital tracking through Banner, Colleague or by spreadsheet to allow contact tracing if needed.

Sick Notification

Employees must notify Human Resources of illness or suspected COVID-19 infection and report symptoms to Human Resources. Fever is the most common symptom of COVID-19, but it could also indicate another illness, especially as seasonal diseases such as the flu emerge. It will be critical for symptomatic individuals to avoid all face-to-face interactions and public gatherings regardless of social distancing practices.

Return to Work Following Illness

Employees who are clinically diagnosed with COVID-19 or receive a positive test result must remain isolated based on the recommendations from their health care provider, public health official or until three full symptom-free days have passed, whichever is longer. 

Employees who report symptoms without known exposure to COVID-19 must be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to work.

All employees must communicate they have cleared status with Human Resources and receive guidance prior to returning.

Contact Investigation

Through a collaboration with the Gloucester County and Cumberland County Health Departments, RCSJ will train contact tracers to conduct assessments throughout our campuses to help health care professionals make public health recommendations for students and employees.

It is critical for students and employees to participate in any investigation, so isolation of ill individuals and quarantine of close contacts can occur quickly.

To report a positive COVID-19 case, contact Human Resources.

Isolation for Employees and Students

Employees and students will be required to isolate in their homes and follow return to work and school protocols.

Cleaning, Maintenance, and PPE

Safer ​Working Environments

As part of the effort to address the ongoing pandemic situation and to establish a safe return-to-campus work environment, RCSJ has developed a set of protocols to help ensure that reasonable measures will be in place for a safe working environment. Although some apprehension is understandable, RCSJ will implement processes to fairly and consistently review requests for accommodation using governmental directives and CDC guidelines. Some of these accommodations may be college-wide, and others may vary by department, depending on specific practical realities and requirements. These measures may include:

  • Staggered shifts
  • Temperature scans
  • Social distancing
  • Room-occupancy limitations

In instances where an employee feels that the applicable accommodations may not reasonably address the employee's particular set of health-related circumstances, the employee may request from Human Resources further accommodations or modifications.

These requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis to assess if any further reasonable accommodations/modifications can be provided to address the employee's circumstances beyond the measures already adopted by the College, department or otherwise not addressed by other relevant RCSJ policies or governmental laws/programs.

Employee Safety

Face masks or face coverings must be worn by all staff working on campus when in the presence of others and in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., common work spaces, meeting rooms, classrooms, etc.). Appropriate use of face masks or coverings is critical to reduce risks to others nearby. The mask or cloth face covering is not a substitute for social distancing.

  • Employees will be required to submit to screening as determined by respective County Health department representatives;
  • Sick employees are expected to remain home and to secure appropriate clearance prior to returning;
  • Employees will be required to track contacts, visitors and any areas visited outside their assigned work area;
  • Employees will abide by safety rules including building access, touch surface contact (i.e., shared copiers, lab equipment); and
  • Employees will complete assigned training and follow policies and procedures as required.

Flexibility and Patience

RCSJ expects new health and safety information to continue to develop in the weeks and months ahead. It will be critical to remain flexible and seek to better understand how to protect everyone’s health and safety, especially the most vulnerable within the College community, as well as those around us.

If you have any questions, please contact Human Resources.

Physical Distancing

  • Occupancy will be restricted in the workplace. Occupancy limits designed with six (6) foot distancing between individuals and are incorporated in the master scheduling program;
  • Employees should physically distance themselves at least six (6) feet apart to the fullest extent possible;
  • Signs will be posted prominently reminding employees of social distancing requirements;
  • Floor markings will be used to identify six (6) feet parameters in high traffic areas where lines may form;
  • Handshakes and physical contact will be prohibited;
  • Workstations, conference rooms, reception areas and common areas may be reconfigured to provide social distancing depending on a department's needs, and department heads will work with their employees to post signage specific to their work areas;
  • One-way directional traffic flow will be considered and implemented, where possible;
  • Common areas such as kitchens, community refrigerators and other break areas will be reviewed for closure or adaptation. Employees are to bring lunch and coffee from home or other outside entities rather than preparing food or beverage items in shared kitchens;
  • Sharing of phones, headsets, desks, etc. will be prohibited; however, consideration will be given for adaptations with cleaning protocols implemented as necessary if sharing is required;
  • Building access will be as limited as possible. Employees will be scheduled with staggered arrival or reporting times;
  • Elevator use will be restricted to those with accessibility needs and should be single-use where possible;
  • Meetings should occur via streaming or other virtual meeting platforms. Any in-person meetings will require the use of approved table and desk configurations following appropriate social distance guidelines; and
  • If weather permits, in-person meetings and other activities requiring less social distancing protocols should be held outside.

Cleaning, Maintenance, and PPE
